A Matter of Balance

From: Monday 02 December 2019 at 01:00pm
To: Monday 02 December 2019 at 03:00pm

NOTE:  This is one class of 8 sessions.  Pre-registration is required. 

Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities.  A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.  Trained volunteer coaches teach the program in a variety of community settings.

Participants learn to:

  • View falls and fear of falling as controllable
  • Set realistic goals for increasing activity
  • Change their environment to reduce fall risk factors
  • Promote exercise to increase strength and balance

A Matter of Balance is taught in eight 2-hour sessions.  The York County Area Agency on Aging, in partnership with the Falls Free Coalition of York County, is offering this session of classes on Mondays and Wednesdays.  The class size is small, with a limit of 12 participants.  There is no charge for the classes.

York JCC members can call 717-843-0918 to register. All others please call Faye at 717-771-9610 to register or for more information.

Location : York Jewish Community Center, 2000 Hollywood Drive, York, PA 17403
